The following chart shows the changes to the fixed income portfolio and equities during 2008. Realized and unrealized losses drove the change in each, although more pronounced for fixed income securities. The Bermuda Composite companies also disposed of these asset classes during the year, evidenced by a decline in net additions. The disposition of equities was nearly equal to the amount of capital losses, proving the earlier point of an allocation shift out of equities.
